January

Oil on canvas
40 x 50 cm or 15.7 x 19.7 inches
As part of this project I decided that I would make one larger studio painting using the smaller plein air paintings as reference.  This is the one for January.  I wanted to show the misty greys that are so prevalent in January and the way the wind plays with the water.  I think it is the surface of the water that has burrowed its way into my thoughts, the currents and the temperature change the appearance of the surface and the colours that are there.
